Try interviewing the kids.

Are you stuck on finding an idea for your video? Make it fun by interviewing the kids or grandkids. Here are a few questions you can ask: “What do you love most about Dad? What’s your best memory you have with your grandfather? What is something your loved one has taught you?” You can also throw some questions in that are sure to have some silly responses from younger kids (“What is Daddy’s favorite thing to say?”). Have fun with it! You can use the same tactic to create a heartwarming, humorous Father’s Day video ad for your business. 

Include your best photos and video clips.

The best way to personalize your Father’s Day gift video is with family photos and video clips that will mean something to the special person in your life. Vimeo has a vast stock library filled with images you can use in your video, but it’s best to add some of your own, too. 

Dad will love seeing pictures of him with the kids, and grandpa will appreciate revisiting special memories with his grandchildren. A free Father’s Day slideshow is quick for you to make, but it can leave a lasting impression on your loved one.

Make it simple.

A Father’s Day video is more about the message than the aesthetics. Make sure your message to your audience or special recipient is loud and clear; everything else can be a supporting detail. Vimeo makes it easy to edit your video, add text, and turn it into something beautiful, but try to avoid making your video too busy.
